 James Wong Biography

James Wong is a Kew-trained botanist, science writer and broadcaster based in London, England. Graduating with a Master of Science degree in Ethnobotany in 2006, he has pursued his key research interests of underutilised crop species, ethnopharmacology and traditional food systems through field work in rural Ecuador, Java and China.

He is the author of the internationally best-selling books 'Grow Your Own Drugs' and 'Homegrown Revolution'.

He also writes extensively for the RHS and the popular scientific press. in 2008 James co-founded his own garden design studio, Amphibian Designs, which has won four consecutive RHS medals, including golds at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2010 & 2011. Based on an exhaustive review of the most cutting edge scientific research, my new RHS book reveals for the first time the secrets to growing crops for measurably improved flavour and nutrition.

James is passionate about communicating plant science to new audiences in relevant and accessible ways. In 2015 The Sunday Times listed him as one of the Top 20 most influential people in horticulture.

With his obsession for food nearly eclipsing his love of plants, James' small London garden serves as a testing-station for all manner of crops and horticultural ideas from around the world.
